violence of course. we have great guests on the show, including public citizen energy director and edward isaac dovere. but i guess the real important story is that mc hammer came out and sang [ inaudible ] at the american music festival. >> is that what happened? >> john: yes. >> i can't wait to tell my grandchildren that this one-hit wonder cy went on with mc hammer. >> john: yes, cy came -- >> deep it going dan. ♪ >> john: cy came out and lip sinked. he is playing the studio version, and then mc hammer comes out and [ inaudible ] his third biggest hit -- >> this sounds like a train wreck. >> john: if you listen very very closely to this you can hear the founding fathers weep. and we'll be talking about david petraeus. because there is now a backlash of people saying why should he have to resign? the obvious answer is because he is the biggest spy in america and spies get fired for less. but what do you think? if america needs him running the cia, if he can do for america what he did for afghanistan, why would you want him leaving? >> yeah. >> john: please feel free
, the taliban re-- routinely send press releases. back in 2. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy? 5-hour energy supports the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. so i can get the energized feeling i need and support a great cause? i'm sold. pink lemonade 5-hour energy? yeah and a portion of every sale goes to the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. i'm sold. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy. get the alert, energized feeling you need and support breast cancer research and access to care. irchtionz senate majority leader harry reid takes on john mccain. but first, let's go to the newsroom and marianne rafferty with the headlines. >> hi, gret a. two workers are missing after an oil rig explosion in the gulf of mexico. four people are seriously hurt. workers used a cutting torch. the flames have been extinguished and there is no leak. this is one day after b.p. agreed to criminal charges a a record-setting $4.5 billion settlement in the previous disaster. hostess is going out of business, after years of struggling with management, turmoil and rising labor costs. the maker of
with climate change and energy. and he seemed to really downplay any expectations of sweeping energy and climate change legislation. saying instead that he was focusing first on the economy and creating jobs. >> i am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it has impacted -- as a consequence i think we have an obligation to future generations to do something about it. and understandably i think the american people right now have been so focused and will continue to be focused on our economy and jobs and growth that if the message is somehow we're going to ignore jobs and growth simply to address climate change, i don't think anybody's going to go for that. i won't go for that. >> reporter: now, wolf, president obama said that more needs to be done. but he says he wants to have a national conversation talking to scientists, elected officials, engineers. so keeping it very broad. not getting into specifics. not talking about the sweeping energy and climate change legislation. but when you're talking to folks on both sides of this, those who are environmentalists, those who ar
, aren't you? >>guest: absolutely. >>stuart: so the cot -- cost of the energy goes up and we all pay for the energy. how do you make sure that ordinary people do not pay the carbon company. >>guest: one way that has been discussed by the congressional budget office is a payroll tax rebate for those in the lower income brackets so we shield the middle class and the poor from the effects of the tax while still getting the benefits of reduced carbon tax, rather, reduced carbon emission. that is the goal. not the revenue. the revenue is nice if we don't hurt people. the goal is to save the environment and reduce global warming. >>stuart: you think carbon taxes will save the land it? >>guest: yes. we need to reduce the carbon emissions. >>stuart: are you worried about the next big storm because we are putting out too much carbon? >>guest: i am. a lot of people in new york city and tri-state area are still suffering. so i am worried. i am worried, more, for what my children and grandchild will experience in big storms if we don't get behind this and start resolving it. >>stuart: you have a
, afghanistan/pakistan and u.s. energy policy as the six top issues. so starting with that, looking at it strategically, do you feel that those are the core issues before president obama and this administration and our country going into 2013? um, if not, what would you change, what would you add? >> i -- when i was informed by lori murray about the outcome of the process by which the world affairs councils went through and came up with those six issues, i thought you had it exactly right. i think those are the big issues, and congratulations to you. i think you have them just right. i think there is an overarching issue on top of all of them that in some sense effects and enables all of them x that is if you look at at the national security challenges and the foreign policy challenges we face, i say that the number one challenge is getting our fiscal house in order. getting a handle on the debt, getting a handle on the deficit which are critical in order to get the economy growing again and people back to work. and i think that is the over -- it's certainly the number one domestic
atomic energy agency. cnn's senior international correspondent matthew chance has more. >> wolf, it's another highly critical report of iran's nuclear program from the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog. it's filled of course with stuff about how iran continues to fail to cooperate with u.n. inspectors and refuses to answer questions about the alleged military dimensions of its nuclear activities. iran of course says its nuclear program is for purely peaceful purposes. but of most concern say western diplomats is the fact that iran has stepped up its capacity to enrich uranium adding more sen ri fujs to its highly secured underground bunker at a place built into a mountain to defend it against potential air strikes. the report says iran has effectively doubled its enrichment capacity there theoretically making it able to have material for a bomb much more quickly than it could do previously. to report, not exactly a game changer perhaps. but still a very worrying document for those countries who like the united states iran's nuclear program very suspiciously indeed. wolf. >> matthew, thank you
capital is a big drag, but on the other hand, there's energy prices low. you've got a low relatively -- natural gas, you got housing, having apparently hit bottom, starting to turn, so there's a variety of things. there's a lot of money on the sidelines. >> you raised china. talk about china for a second. the united states, europe, japan, latin america, asia excluding china, every one of those regions experienced a financial and economic crisis in the last 20 years. china stands out as not having gone through such turmoil. can they continue? can they keep that up? is china the next country that we have to worry about for some kind of economic upheaval? >> i'll start. well, the short term, i think what's important for people to understand this year with the political transition is the chinese leadership has a real fear of inflation, and this goes back to 89. they were going o error on the side of being careful with food prices, higher inflation. now that they are threw that, what you start to see if they've got the resources to be able to avoid a hard landing, but the critical questio
tax reform. we could have energy legislation. we haven't even had a defense bill or appropriations bill or cybersecurity. joe lieberman is still trying to get the cybersecurity bill which is really important for this country. really dangerous. but the president, he is our leader. he needs to engage more. we got somebody here in the room that can talk to him. i'm incurable optimist. i think he may do it. >> well, i think it's got to start in this lame-duck session that begins tomorrow. we can't adopt a total bipartisan balanceed budget agreement but we can get -- balanced budget agreement but we can get started. we can have a down payment at least to cover the first year of what otherwise would be the sequester which is $110 billion, and i think we got to prove we can do some tax reform and we can do some entitlement reform and pull it together. and then adopt a process that tries again to push the committees -- according to the regular order -- to come out with enough savings and spending, enough new revenue as part of tax reform and most critically long-term entitlement reform. t
kind words about me. taxes is growing by leaps and bounds. this is made our country much more energy independent and has brought the price of natural gas down. i hope we can agree we don't want to reverse that and continue to go forward with these wonderful changes that have taken place in energy. we have a chance to see a renaissance in manufacturing. a lot of these jobs going overseas may come home. i have been asked and i would make three quick points. i think this election was about a lot of things. i think it is more complicated than that. i would start with the candidates. mitt romney is a good man. he wasn't as natural a communicator as the president . he had a habit of saying things that didn't help him. the president is a natural and gifted communicator. the democrats had a much better get out the vote operation. republicans need to focus on that. democrats were better in the swing states in getting at the base. the third thing is the following. 55% of moderates voted for barack obama for president. why did the republicans lose the moderates? the farther right positions gove
to the energy and commerce committee, you are actually lying to all of those people who are now going to bear the pain of the harm which is being done in the gold state region -- the gulf state region. >> thinking back to the time, did you know at the time -- did you have suspicions at the time that lies were being told? >> yes. we had experts who were telling us that they felt that the flow rate was much higher. we had experts who arrived who said that, if they could gain access to this billc -- to the spill cam, they would be able to determine how large the flow rate was. and determine the flow rate being more -- flow rate by being given more access to all of the different angles that the camera made it possible to observe the spill. once that happened, the experts around the country who lack access to that information dramatically -- who had access to that information dramatically increased the damage they thought was being done. it was a exponentially-higher spill rate then they had represented to us on may 4, that they had represented initially in the first week after the spill, and whic
is the first photo from it. black elk energy confirms that one of its platforms caught fire. the fire, we understand, from a coast guard captain we spoke to, it is apparently out. you might remember in the deep water horizon fire the that led to the bp oil spill. i burned for a couple of days until the rig melted and collapse and then the wheels started spewing into the gulf. this does not appear to be as serious of a situation. however there is word that there are workers that are missing at this point. we are told that the fire is out. a couple of crew members in the gulf are missing. jenna: right now, a suspected operative of hezbollah has not been a allowed to walk free. he was accused of killing five american soldiers in iraq. he was acquitted by an iraqi court and allowed today to fly to lebanon. here is the important background. the united states handed this man over to the iraqis last december, earlier this year we have received assurances that they would not release this man, even though the iraqi court had cleared him of the charges, but as we stated, he is now free today. jon:
's what i had sort of driving my career, and she poured all of her energy and time and effort into taking my sister and i on auditions and horseback riding and ice skating and tap dancing -- megyn: maybe too much as it turns out. >> yeah, very intense. very over the top. so it's a story that i think is relatable on that level, a lot of people have, well, i mean, some other people -- megyn: well, you don't know where it's going to go with your mom, because you're pretty harshly critical of her, but you recount the stories of what she did to you and how much, you could say abuse, that she put you through, and you don't know how it's going to end. i'm reading this thinking, is she still, you you know, talkino her mother? are they on speaking terms after she wrote this book? what's the answer to that? >> the story itself comes to a shocking and explosive end. as you said, you don't know how this can all resolve. and, you know, my mom makes some decisions in the end that i find pretty appalling, we end up -- our whole family sort of falls apart. and we haven't had a relationship for more than
on tax reform, and then work on these problems like energy, comprehensive energy problems that are opportunity and making. so i am much were optimistic than some. imagine hubert humphrey. actually the original he gave me gordon humphrey suggested by mistake or little-known senator from new hampshire. but eventually they corrected it. >> the president has just given a press covers but i do not get the chance to hear it but he was sounding feisty on the issue of taxes. he seemed to be saying that he was given a mandate in this election by the american people, not to continue with tax cuts for the wealthiest americans. he said if there is one difference between mitt romney and his campaign, it was that he opposes the idea of the wealthiest continuing to have those tax cuts. if that is the position of the president and it continues to be the position of the democrats, isn't going to hold things up in terms of budget negotiation with republican colleagues? >> i look at this one simple way and that is i want to bring the debt debt. when you look at the bush tax cuts, and the way
idea and harness some of the energy around the idea and help some of the individual part of the party going forward. i think he'll help them. >> you were with the president in iowa a emotional place for him. he doesn't have anymore campaign ahead of him. give us a short picture what it was like being with him as it was coming to an end. >> he's not a very publicly emotional guy as most people know. he said later that he was struck by the last event. everybody is tired. you're the walking dead. both campaigns. every reporter. you're trying to make it through. but he looked out that night and saw all these faces of a these people who believed with him and with him in 2007. i don't mean random faces. i mean, three or people he actually recognized and knew and kind of waivedded at him and waived back. and that's struck him. i think it impacted him. you could see he got a little emotional. he was reflective as it sounds like romney was as well. i remember morning of the election we were waiting to do the interviews the day of election. he said i thought how about romney and his supporters
